“And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd” (Matthew 9:35–36).
In these days, it is not hard to feel the frustration, fear, anxiety, loss of hope and pain many are experiencing and expressing. No one felt these conditions more than Jesus did. As He walked through His own creation, He healed, comforted, and supplied food for many. But these conditions needed something far better and more powerful than medicine and stopping disease.
These persons needed “the gospel of the kingdom.” It’s the Good News of the King that has provided a way into His kingdom through His death, burial, resurrection and ascension. While the material and physical things help our temporal needs for a time, they do not go beyond death. The gospel of Jesus Christ offers eternal life in a new heaven where righteousness reigns.
Have you offered that Gospel, that Good New to anyone today? This is true compassion of the highest order! When you do, you will be a real ambassador of the Good Shepherd (John 10:11; 2 Corinthians 5:20).
